DAMASCUS, (PIC)– The 82nd conference for the Arab liaison officers of economic boycott of Israel opened in Damascus on Tuesday with the participation of 14 Arab countries amidst renewed calls for activating those offices.
The general commissioner of the main office for the boycott of Israel, Mohammed Al-Tayeb, said in a press statement that holding on to the boycott weapon and activating its role was one of the peaceful means of self-defense that would boost the Palestinian people’s struggle against Israeli occupation.
He called for Arab awareness of Israel’s attempts to market its goods in the Arab countries through multi-national companies.
Salem Al-Ojaili, the general coordinator of Islamic boycott office, said that the Israeli “aggressive and terrorist” policies made it imperative on the Arab countries to boycott Israel.
He recalled that previous commitment by all Arab countries inflicted severe losses on Israel, calling for intensifying political, media and popular potentials to revive the boycott and for opening regional offices in all Islamic countries.
